    When deleting an entire folder with files in it, the files are deleted but the folder remains.

    The message that pops up then says folder not empty. The folder can not be deleted anymore with no ftp client at all.

    The same procedure (deleting a folder with files in it) with ws-ftp works just fine, the files and the folders are gone.

    here's the transcript

    CWD 01_mapmoetwegluktniet
    250 CWD command successful.
    PWD
    257 "/opt/guide/www.***.nl/HTML/01_mapmoetwegluktniet" is current directory.
    PORT ***,***,15,90,208,221
    200 PORT command successful.
    LIST
    150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list.
    226 Transfer complete.
    CWD /opt/guide/www.***.nl/HTML
    250 CWD command successful.
    RMD 01_mapmoetwegluktniet
    550 01_mapmoetwegluktniet: Directory not empty
    ftp_delete or ftp_rmdir: -30006 (state == RDEL_DELETING)
    PWD
    257 "/opt/guide/www.***.nl/HTML" is current directory.
    PORT ***,***,15,90,105,203
    200 PORT command successful.

    You might try running this AppleScript:

    tell application "Fetch 4.0.1"
    set use LIST minus al to true
    end tell

    The server might be hiding file names beginning with a period, and using the non-standard LIST -al command should work around that.

    Thanks,
